Tropical Storm HERMINE


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM HERMINE DISCUSSION NUMBER   2
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 PM EDT SUN AUG 29 2004
 
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE T3.0 FROM TAFB AND T2.5 FROM BOTH
SAB AND AIRFORCE GLOBAL.  BASED ON THIS THE INITIAL WIND SPEED IS
INCREASED TO 40 KTS.  THE CENTER OF CIRCULATION IS LOCATED TO THE
NORTH OF THE AREA OF CONVECTION DUE TO VERTICAL SHEAR.  THIS SAME
SHEAR SHOULD LIMIT DEVELOPMENT SOMEWHAT AND ONLY A SMALL INCREASE
IN INTENSITY IS FORECAST.  ALSO...THE SYSTEM WILL BE MOVING AWAY
FROM THE WARM WATERS OF THE GULF STREAM INTO MUCH COOLER WATERS IN
THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.
 
THE CYCLONE IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST ABOUT 9 KNOTS
AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE.  A GRADUAL TURN TO THE
NORTH IS EXPECTED AND...BY 36 HOURS...THE CYCLONE SHOULD HAVE
MERGED WITH OR BEEN ABSORBED BY THE MUCH LARGER EXTRATROPICAL
CIRCULATION ASSOCIATED WITH GASTON.  THIS MERGER OR ABSORPTION
MEANS THAT NO TROPICAL STORM WATCHES OR WARNING WILL BE NECESSARY. 
HOWEVER...GALE WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED FOR THE EXTRATROPICAL LOW.
